Record Number Of Travelers Expected This Thanksgiving

Buses and trains will also be packed with another 1.5 million passengers.

Flights Tuesday morning were on time at Logan but it could be a much different story by Wednesday.

MassPort is asking passengers to show up 2-and-a-half hours before take-off.

Weather delays are expected throughout the Northeast as a wintery storm moves through. In Boston, only rain is expected.

The forecast has made for a lot of worried travelers.

“I’m hoping things aren’t a problem down in Atlanta. I was looking at things this morning. They are having a weather front,” one traveler said.

Weather aside, Thanksgiving is always a big travel week.

About 1,000 people will be in and out of Logan in the next few days.
